GP Patient Survey – 2018 Results

GP Patient Survey – 2018 Results

The GP Patient Survey is an independent survey run by Ipsos MORI on behalf of NHS England.

The survey is sent out to over a million people across the UK. The results show how people feel about their GP practice.

The Practice is proud of the high satisfaction ratings it achieved in the recently published National Patient Survey. Of course there is always room for improvement but our efforts are being undermined by the number of patients who do not attend their appointments.

To see our results please see here
